LVP Has a Surprising Take on Tom Schwartz & Sophia's Relationship: "He Needs a Diversion"

In addition to Lisa Vanderpump, Ally Lewber also weighed in on Tom Schwartz and Sophia Skoro's relationship.

Tom Schwartz and Sophia Skoro may already be saying the "l word," but the Vandeprump Rules cast member's girlfriend has yet to achieve another equally important milestone: meeting Lisa Vanderpump.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

The SUR matriarch revealed as much in a recent interview before weighing in on the pairing.

How does Lisa Vanderpump feel about Tom Schwartz and Sophia Skoro's relationship?

Lisa was asked for her thoughts on the couple during an April 25 interview with Access Hollywood, but it turns out she didn't even know Schwartz was dating Sophia. "He has a new girlfriend? I told you I don't know what's going on," she said with a laugh.

Lisa was then informed of Sophia's age — she's 23, while Schwartz is 41 — but she wasn't quick to judge because of the age gap between her and her own husband, Ken Todd. "How can I be a hypocrite?" she said. "There's 16 years between Ken and I. We've been married forever."

As such, "Let him have it," Lisa added of Schwartz's relationship with Sophia before making a joke at Tom Sandoval's expense. "I mean, also, he needs a diversion from Tom Sandoval, which is like his girlfriend."

Who on the VPR cast has Tom Schwartz's girlfriend Sophia met?

Besides the obvious (aka Sandoval), Sophia has also met James Kennedy's girlfriend, Ally Lewber. The "Girls Girl" singer recalled their encounter during an exclusive chat with The Daily Dish, explaining, "I met Sophia briefly at Neon Carnival at Coachella this past weekend, and she's really sweet."

What's more, Sophia said said on the April 16 episode of The Viall Files podcast, "I've met Scheana [Shay], like, twice. [And] I met Lala [Kent] yesterday. It was good — she's really pretty [and] really sweet."

Who is Sophia Skoro?

Sophia is 23 years old and working as a marketing manager and strategist in addition to running a vintage clothing store, Shop Sosko. Schwartz said on an April episode of WWHL that they've been dating for five months now.

"She's just really effing cool!" Schwartz recently told Access Hollywood. "She's charismatic and clever and kind of unconventionally funny. She's way cooler than me."
